Olga Katina, the Secretary-General

 

After completion of Autumn Master-Classes, Olga Katina understood that it is extremely hard to imagine her life without this Organization, and in October 2010 she joined Vladivostok MUNRFE Club. Just a year after, she successfully coordinated the Autumn Master-Classes 2011, and in Spring 2012 Olga for the whole term became a part of the Cabinet in Vladivostok Club, running her beloved Debate Committee. The first inter-club project Olga participated in was the IX International MUNRFE Conference (2010), where she represented Turkey in the International Organization for Migration. That time the young MUNFRE member did not cultivate the love to migration issues, therefore at her next conference, II Regional MUNRFE Session (2011), she chose to observe the work of the United Nations Security Council as a delegate of the Islamic Republic of Iran. This conference granted the future Secretary-General opportunity to represent MUNRFE at the Global MUN 2011 in Incheon, the Republic of Korea. The next challenge faced by Ms. Katina was the X International Conference (2012), which gave a chance to try herself as a judge of Russia in the International Court of Justice. This experience was quite challengeable, but brought a lot of knowledge and broadened her competence in the sphere of international law. This performance also played a great role in her further selection for the Asian International MUN 2012 (Beijing), where she became a part of the Best Delegation and was granted, together with Vitaliy Savenkov, the Best Documents award. The III Regional Conference provided Olga an opportunity for her first experience as a Secretariat Officer, that time she was the Vice-President of the General Assembly. The following XI International Conference was fateful for her: there she received a recognition as the Best Delegate of the Conference, brought her the Best Documents award and called the team of China she represented the Best. In recognition of such an achievement, she was granted membership in MUNRFE Team to National Model UN, New York, USA and this March she successfully participated there.

Besides MUNRFE, Ms.Katina is fond of her major studying of international relations, reading, photography, and also famous as local design apprentice.
